Question about 2000 Honda Odyssey
As soon as the sliding door closes, I can hear the door lock. I'm not sure if it's a bad actuator or relay or whatever. I know that when I pull the lever to open the gas door, this door locks by design to protect the gas door from being crushed. So, I guess something could be wrong with that as well... My battery also keeps dying with a good battery and alternator, so I charged it, disconnected the negative, then touched it back and listened. As soon as the negative touched the battery terminal, I heard that door lock again. I think it is constantly trying to lock, which is draining the battery. Any ideas? Is there a relay that needs replacing? Is this possibly the lock actuator? Should I just give up and take it to a mechanic? I need our minivan back, and I can't let my wife drive it with the battery constantly dying on her.

very common problem is the door lock actuator. i would recommend replace that. a good idea also would be to remove the door panel and check all the rods that connect to the assembly and make sure one didnt pop off.

Testimonial: "I figured it out before i got the answer, but you were right, it was the actuator for sure, i replaced it and it worked just fine. thank you!"
You should be able to manually unlock the door and open it,even without the power lock working.The center roller on these vans is prone to wear,causing binding and misalignment of the electrical connectors that you see when the door is open.This may cause the locks to be disabled and the door to not open with the power button.There are three rollers on each door,but many times only the center one is worn out.The installation & alignment of the rollers is critical on this vehicle,so you should consider the dealer for this repair. good luck
